chased them into the house, punched one in the face. then the chase continued outside. the women were able to get away to a neighbor's house not before one of them was also physically assaulted. police are still looking for them. you're looking at video of a home invasion robbery that happened a little -- about a week and a half ago. this was across town, about 50 miles south. police had announced the arrest of the three men who allegedly broke into people's cars and stole the cars and they were gone, but they were arrested just a couple days later. investigators were able to link them to home invasion robberies. they're hoping they can get information on these two men from this morning's case, connect them to other incidents that have happened and get them into custody as quick as possible. hearing that other cars may have been broken into in the early morning hours. again, a very fluid situation. we saw police everywhere. to recap, two women assaulted. they're both fine. one was taken to a local hospital. the two suspects still at large.
that's what we know so far here in east san jose. stephanie chuang. >> thank you very much. we have new developments to bring you from another strange story following this morning's amber alert in the east bay. the child they first reported missing does not even exist. nbc bay area's terry mcsweeney has been following this story all morning long. this one seems to get stranger and stranger as we get more information coming in. >> reporter: yeah, and there's more information still to come. i can tell you at 12:30 this morning oakland pd received a call if a woman saying she'd been abused, her car ramd, her child stolen by her husband. here we are a little after 11:00 and that woman is the one who is now facing charges. this little girl kidnapped. her father 56-year-old kim tollfree, the suspect. all that based on a story told to police by a woman who was described as tollfree's wife. all that part of an amber alert this morning. it began here at 94th avenue and
holly street after an argument when kim tollfree rammed his flat bed into a car, a car with her daughter isaza in it. >> the father was armed, he was dangerous, he'd been physically abusive to his wife. >> reporter: but a few hours later mr. tollfree called police to say there couldn't have been a kidnapping because he and that woman don't have a toddler. police brought him down to headquarters for questioning. officers went back out to the scene at 94th and holly where they found the wife's damaged car but now they're not sure if the husband crashed into it or if there ever was an argument. >> now we'll deal with the fallout issues of filing a false police report, initiating an amber alert that shouldn't have been initiated. but if we were to say one thing, we'd much rather err on the side of caution. >> reporter: as for whose picture this is, that's part of the investigation. one of the big concerns for oakland police this morning is what this did to the credibility of an amber alert.
all this information put out there turns out none of it is true. as for mr. tollfree, he may face charges if he in fact abused that woman. the woman likely to face charges says oakland pd. terry mcsweeney, nbc bay area news. also new at 11:00, a 70-year-old man from the salinas valley is now under arrest and could be facing serious charges after a strange incident aboard a greyhound bus early this morning. the santa clara county share's office says the bus driver called 911 from the road this morning as it made its way to oakland from los angeles. deputies say the suspect annoyed and harassed an 11-year-old girl aboard the bus, then once the bus driver was alerted he pulled over in south san jose where the man was taken into custody. we spoke to passengers as they got off that bus at the san jose depot, and they have conflicting stories. >> this lady started screaming that the guy behind her was
molesting her child, 11 years old. >> the guy was telling me that he was trying to get his sweater off his seat. the next thing he knows, he like trips, no? and then the lady started accusing saying that, oh, like he tried to like touch like my daughter. >> he was repeatedly going by her area where she was sitting, we still have to confirm did he actually physically touch her and if so where? was it over the clothing, under the clothing? but definitely a fact we can't confirm that he was harassing her. >> reporter: sergeant cardoza says the man could face felony charges and he's expected to be booked any time. cardoza also says the 11-year-old girl is shook up but otherwise she is okay. this morning, oakland police are disputing a report by federal monitors that says one of its officers pointed a gun at a sleeping 19-month-old toddler while serving a search warrant last year. oakland police chief howard jordan spoke less than 30
minutes ago about this incident last july. the report said two officers allegedly pointed their guns at the baby who was on the couch. oakland police say the search did take place, but deny a child was ever threatened. >> the officers conducted a search of the home. during the search of the home, they did see a 19-month-old kid laying on the couch. the officers immediately recognize that the kid was not a threat to them, continue on their search. in fact one officer remained with the child until the search was completed t report co ecomp >> the report comes as the police act on increasing reforms to avoid a federal takeover. new details to tell you about after a suicide bombing at the u.s. embassy in turkey. at least one person now confirmed dead. several others are wounded as investigators there try to figure out exactly who is behind this attack. local reporters say the bomber
is a turkish citizen. witnesses say he entered the u.s. embassy compound in ankara through a side gate and he made it as far as the first x-ray machine before finally detonating and explosive, killing both himself and a security guard. the u.s. embassy has acknowledged this attack did happen through a statement thanking turkish authorities for their assistance. they say at this point there will be more details coming and will be issued later. now, to the big game. the quest for six and a lot of people calling this one the harbowl. brothers john and jim harbaugh giving their press conference this morning. they talked about how they're preparing for the big day and the reality that one of them will be going home very did i pointed when this game is all over. >> you do think about sh obviously, in any game, that's always something you think about. so it's not really about -- jim has pointed this out before. it's not really about how we're going to feel. you know, every coach, every player, everybody in the organization, when you win,
everybody -- it's jubilation, and when you lose it's just bitter disappointment. because so much goes into it. it will be no different in this game. >> coaching wise it's been very much the same. you're in a dark room, you're watching tape, watching the baltimore ravens, studying them. and then getting with the players, getting out on the practice field. that's been wonderful, wonderful. we've had great practices. >> well, both the coaches there very low key taking this one all in stride. mom and dad, jackie and jack much more entertaining earlier this week. but these two, jim and john say they are focused and just looking forward to sunday's big showdown. >> in the meantime, authorities say they've gotten some leads on the baltimore ravens fan who scammed a 49ers fan out of 5900 bucks. the alameda countysheriff's office says it is working closely with authorities in florida to track down the person who sold four fake tickets to sharon osgood on craigslist.
osgood and their family, they've since received five real tickets to sunday's game and they are in new orleans right now. a south bay art gallery is getting in and all the super bowl excitement this weekend. vernon davis gallery 85 on santana road features artwork from vernon davis himself, the tight end for the niners. those three paintings right there, that is vernon davis' magic touch right there. the gallery will hold a concert and sale this weekend in honor of the super bowl. some of the musicians including this guy here, jasper, were at the gallery early this morning getting in on final rehearsals before tomorrow's concert. this concert happens tomorrow from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. all the proceeds from the concert and art sales will benefit the vernon davis foundation for the arts which is designed to get children excited about the art industry. >> vernon davis, a true renaissance man. very nice. the 49er faithful were out in
